Skip to comments.Mother forced to give birth alone in toilet of 'flagship' NHS hospital (Democrat Party HealthCare)

A young mother had to deliver her own baby in the lavatory of a flagship hospital because there were no trained midwives available.
Surveyor Catherine Brown had made the agonising decision to undergo a chemically-induced abortion after being told her 18-week pregnancy was risking her life.
But when the time came to give birth she was on an ear, nose and throat ward and had only her mother to help her through the ordeal. Her premature son Edward died in her arms minutes later.
The traumatised mother-of-one said: "I just howled and howled. I remember sitting there looking at him and thinking, 'What do I do next?'. I just sat there on the toilet looking at my dead baby.
"It was dreadful - a terrible nightmare. Then I started crying my eyes out and repeating, 'I'm sorry baby, I'm so sorry'. I still can't believe the hospital had no trained staff who could help me."

The “Flagship” is presumably the “Titanic”.
Well she decided to chemically abort it and the “delivery” was the result. I don’t call that “giving birth”, even if she was told to abort it for her own health reasons.
Not to say that she should have had to do it alone!
One major difference between the US and the rest of the world is that our nation does everything to save premature babies, and allow them to go to delivery, etc. This results ultimately in an artificially higher infant mortality rates.
An example of this is the recent birth of Canadian Quadruplets in the USA, since there are no adequate functioning intensive care for premies even in Canada’s wealthier provinces.
This baby would be more likely to be alive in the US. In the UK, this baby and mom were put in servere harm’s way by total neglect. The mom in fact was essentially coerced into a nightmare unnecessary pregnancy termination.
You point is well taken, but see post 5.

still the plan that the piaps will bring to a healthcare plan...coming to you soon!!!
You’ll never grow old, with Hillary-Care.
If the state is footing the bill, there is no way they are going to pay the hundreds of thousands of dollars required to maintain the life of a premature infant. This story may be bad PR for a day, but from the state’s point of view, they saved a heck of a lot of money.
Beautiful. I think I'll steal it!
Ah, but it was free.
I was thinking just like you.
This thing about a mother’s “health”, well that’s their code word for....”anybody, anytime”.
What possible danger to a healthy young woman’s life can carrying a foetus, in this case at what....18 weeks?
Anything is possible, I know...but what are the odds?
The libs will ram this, too, down your throat one millimeter at a time until the likes of you have been sold.
Welcome to the nanny state, where Hillary would at leaset “care” for you.
In Britain you must call ahead to the emergency room to see if they can fit you and your emergency in.
I read the Daily Mail pretty regularly and the medical fiasco’s are unconscionable.
She didn’t give birth. This was an abortion which the child survived for a few moments in an incompetent hospital.
